something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

Though loaded with clichés such as rousing pre-battle speeches and over-dramatized death scenes, Gung Ho tells a more-or-less true story about the successful deployment of the Makin Raiders (Carlson's Raiders) on a minor Japanese stronghold (Makin Atoll).
Fifteen thousand men volunteer, and in the end, only 200 make the team.
These two hundred men will adopt the Chinese phrase Gung Ho (roughly translated as working harmoniously) as a philosophical approach to the task at hand.

I Saw This Movie listed on the TCM schedule...I wonder if its that good for TCM?....A Good Movie....A Pre-cursor to more modern war movies... If you enjoyed this you should see "A Walk In The Sun"(Its on IA)

The opening sequence where men are being chosen to join the Raiders immediately brought to mind the scenes in The Dirty Dozen where a similar selection processes occurs. In both, men with mental or emotional pathologies are picked, as long as they are ready to fight or die. Of course here, most of the men are of the mom-and-apple-pie variety.

There are some good action sequences once the Raiders reach Makin Island. And raiders they are: Shortly after taking the island they have to leave, destroying everything they can as they go. This was just part of a delaying strategy early in the war done to protect the sea lanes to Australia.

I downloaded the 630MB AVI file, listed as DivX. Video and audio are OK.

Excellent WW II movie made while the war was being fought. True story with great action sequences.
